Asiago derives its name from a small town in northern Italy. In Italy, asiago usually means asiago fresco (fresh), which has a mild flavor and semi-hard texture. In Wisconsin, cheesemakers age asiago to develop sharper flavors, similar to a blend of aged cheddar and parmesan flavors. This aging also changes the texture of the cheese from elastic and firm to hard and granular.
